I've always been of the opinion that black & white is chic, but it seems to be having a moment this spring, which always means it's the best time to stock up!  (Whenever "trends" I love all the time come back into fashion, I take that opportunity to buy loads of the things I like...).  Black and white pairs nicely together, and in a bind you can even do all black or all white... easy as pie.  Of course The Domain has some...

So...I may not want to look like ZZ Top in their cheap sunglasses, but I do appreciate a cheap pair of sunglasses if I'm going to spend any time at all at the pool or beach this summer.  I love my Karen Walker sunnies, but I don't want to lose them, or ruin them with salt water, so for lounging by the pool, I'll stick with a less expensive pair, thank you*.  Here are some of my favorite inexpensive sunglasses around the...

I don't want to spend a lot of time on makeup when it's hot outside; sometimes I'll just use sunscreen and a little mascara and call it a day.  Otherwise, my routine is so easy, it's crazy - good for hot summer days... Here are my favorite skincare/makeup products from stores in The Domain: 1. Jane Iredale tinted moisturizer with SPF | $38 at Luxe Apothetique 2. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ SPF 50+ | $39 at...

Exclusively for their Simon Mall stores, Madewell in the Domain is offering 20% off purchases over $125 starting April 11 and ending April 13.  I have a lot of love for Madewell and own more of their clothing, shoes & jewelry than I care to admit...but there's always room for another piece, and one thing they do the best are dresses, and the perfect flat sandals to go with them. **Prices below may vary dependig on store. ...

I love my big chunky necklaces and bracelets when the weather's cool, but as temperatures head up to 90 degrees, I'll trade them in for smaller, more delicate pieces thank you.  Here are some beautiful (and affordable!) pieces I found at The Domain: Madewell mini geochain necklace | $38 at Madewell Eden Earrings | $34 at Anthropologie Grotto pendant necklace | $58 at J Crew Bundle of Stones cuff | $78 at Free People...

You've probably seen all the fashion editorials on "festival dressing" that feature 20-somethings decked out in mini dresses, denim shorts, straw hats and teeny tiny bags.  The idea behind it is great; easy dressing for being outside in hot weather, and never fear, it can be adapted for any age.  As a 41-year old, I prefer longer skirts and linen pants over minis & denim shorts, but I do love a great small crossbody bag...

Now, I know I'm going to get some eye-rolls for saying this, but I think flip flops are better left for the beach.  Or the pool.  Sure, you can find leather flip-flops that are slightly more stylish than plastic, but I generally like to keep them for short errands, or pool parties, and really, are they that comfortable? Here are some of my favorite super-stylish, and comfortable (look for padded soles, ankle straps, or...

Denim is for more than just jeans...I love a great denim jacket as a layering piece in spring and fall.  Wear a cropped denim jacket with dresses, a classic jacket with black pants, a faded jacket with your dark jeans (double denim, yay!!!), and a fun jacket with just about anything.  Here are some of my favorite denim jackets from around the Domain, at every price point.  Have fun with them!! H&M denim biker jacket | $39...

I'm not much for prints in general, or color, let's be honest! But when spring rolls around, I can't help but start to get eager for lighter dressing and with that comes the advent of floral prints.  So, here are several floral prints I found at the Domain that will suit even the most minimal dresser: 1 Zara mao neck printed blouse | $69 at Zara (would be SO PERFECT with white jeans!!!) 2 Short kimono | $24.95 at H&M 3...

Is it spring yet?? Nothing says warm weather like a white dress, and don't think you can't wear white; there's a style out there for everyone, and white can be very flattering!  Here are just a few styles I found at the Domain.  Find one that works for you and rock it all Spring/Summer!! If you're tall, go for a maxi dress.  If you're curvy and short, the Banana Republic fit & flare dress is perfect for you!  If you  have...
